Open Recreation

Students can use their OneCards/Membership Cards for the day use equipment at the Wellness Center front desk including; Basketballs, Soccerballs, Footballs, Volleyballs, Corn Hole, Kan-Jam, etc. There is no cost to check out any of the equipment.

If the equipment is not returned, or return in a damaged/unusable state (outside of normal wear and tear) the individual who signed out the equipment will be held responsible. The damaged/non-returned equipment fee is $25.00 payable with OneCard Common funds or credit/debit card during normal business hours. Until the equipment has been returned or the fee has been paid the Wellness Center reserves the right to suspend access to the fitness center, open recreation, equipmet check out , and intramurals. 

Open Recreation will primarily take place in the Multipurpose Gym located on the second floor, room 208 (or in the Competition Gymnasium when available, room 112). Activities will be scheduled based upon availability; basketball, floor hockey, volleyball, indoor soccer, pickleball, etc. When nothing is scheduled, or reserved, the activity will be basketball.

Failure to abide by these policies will result in the cancellation of Open Recreation deemed appropriate by the administrative staff. The Wellness Center staff has the authority to instruct members and/or guests to leave the Wellness Center if their conduct necessitates such action. The Wellness Center has a zero tolerance policy for violence or intimidation of any sort. Any user, who in the judgment of the Administrative Staff, Building Manager or Wellness Center staff member, engages in or tries to instigate violence or intimidating actions or whose conduct threatens or endangers the health and safety of any member, student or staff member, will result in immediate removal with disciplinary actions (if applicable).
